Do you know the history behind the Advent wreath?
We can trace the origins of the Advent wreath back to pagan tradition. Pre-Christian Germanic people lit candles and placed them in wreaths during the darkest days of winter as a sign of hope for the light that would come with Spring time. Throughout history, the use of the wreath was adopted by Christians (probably during the Middle Ages) as a way to prepare for the light Christ brings during the Christmas season.
The Advent wreath is wrapped in rich symbolism. The wreath itself is shaped in a circle, a reminder of the eternal existence of God. The evergreen branches that circle many wreathes remind us that we look forward to an eternal life with Christ. Holly leaves, which have a distinct pointed look, remind us of the crown of thorns from Christ’s passion. Red berries bring to mind the blood of Christ.
According to tradition, the Advent candles themselves also have a variety of meanings. Some traditions hold that there are four candles to represent the 4,000 years between the time of Adam and Eve and the birth of Jesus. Another tradition states that the first candle reminds us of the message of the patriarchs, the second calls to mind the prophets, the third symbolizes the call of John the Baptist, and the fourth represents Mary’s role in Salvation history.
The colors also hold special meaning. The purple colored candles remind us that Advent is a time of sacrifice and preparation. The pink candle is lit on the third week in Advent to remind us of the joy Christ brings when He returns. Did you know that each candle has a special meaning, too? Each week, the different Advent candles bring to mind certain virtues that can aid us in our journey to the manger. Here are the four meanings behind each candle in the wreath:
ENTRUSTED TO THE POPE’S WORLDWIDE PRAYER NETWORK
